It shouldn’t be a surprise that Peyton’s worst NFL season came during his rookie year. Of course, he didn’t really have much to work with. After bottoming out the previous year and landing the No. 1 pick to select Manning, the Colts failed to improve record-wise, finishing with the same 3-13 record as they had the previous season. Manning’s 28 interceptions led the NFL, but the victory for any haters out there was about to become very short-lived.
